I'm curious about the changes made to the 370 fields in the examples
found at the end of this revised document.  The use of parentheses
around the state abbreviations appears to contradict the instructions
in the second half of RDA 16.2.2.4, which deals formatting place names
associated with persons, families, corporate bodies, among a few other
things.  Am I reading the RDA rule incorrectly?
